Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is a United Nations Ambassador for the girl child, has sponsored the coaching of two women athletes who will represent the country at global platforms.

The 71-yer-old veteran has sponsored women athletes Ayonika Paul and Pooja Ghatkar - both shooters - as part of the Medals4India campaign initiated by the NGO Olympic Gold Quest.

Olympic Gold Quest is a programme of the Foundation of Sports And Games (founded in 2001), started by Indian sporting icons to identify and support Indian athletes with a proven track record and who have the potential to win Olympic gold medals.

The two athletes will be participating in the upcoming Commonwealth Games, World Championships, and Asian Games in 2014.

The main goal behind the initiative is to help them win at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The funds will help with their training and equipment in preparation for their respective competitions, said a source.
